America the not so great

America the great

where we care more about a kid’s GPA more than their mental health.

where we are driven by money and not dreams.

where the people are lied to, and believe every word.

where the people are sheep and can’t think for themselves,

but common core sure is helping, right?

where we believe becoming great again, means becoming divided again.

where people are forced to hide who they are, simply because of beliefs.

they say the gays and the Mexicans are taking over.

they say gays and immigrants shouldn’t have equal rights.

well, if thats what being great means, 

maybe we should stick to being bad.

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
